Abstract

This study investigated correlates of sexual problems among the aged in Mbaise, Imo State, Nigeria. The sample consists of 446 literate respondents from the area aged 60 years and above. They were composed through stratified random sampling technique from 15 autonomous communities in the area. Relevant data for testing one hypothesis which guided the study were collected through the administration of Sexual Problems Questionnaire of the Aged (SPQA) on the respondents by the researchers. The test-retest reliability co-efficient of this instrument with 50 respondents within an interval of 2 weeks was 0.95. The hypothesis was tested with Factorial Analysis of variance. The results show that gender, level of education, type of previous work and marital status do not significantly influence the sexual problems of the aged. The result was discussed and some recommendations were also made. One of the recommendations is that functional guidance and counselling offices should be established in all social settings and not the school setting alone.
